Disney tickets-- orlando

we're planning a family vacation down to florida. will be staying mostly in miami but one day in orlando. we were thinking about going to disney land there as that is the only main attraction there. anyways i checked on their official website and the prices are pretty high. we're going to go there anyway but i was looking around for good deals in order to save money. we dont have time share or anything and it's just one day trip to the park so hard to find any good package. anyone who has been there recently has any idea where i can find good discounted deal for disney tickets ? any sort of info would be helpful. thanks in advance !!

  • the only place to get legit tickets is through disney, all the others are a scam

  • There is also Sea World Universal Studios and a ton of themed dinners, and smaller attractions like the Ripley s Believe it or not Museum and Wet N Wild water park...

  • Disney is far from the only attraction in Orlando.... look into other stuff if you really cant afford to pay the full price for tickets. We went the other month & I attempted to find discount tickets & called up disney & everything but nothing was available. Florida residents get discounts, military do as well (I think) then some states have discounts for AAA but that was about it then. Call them up the people are very friendly & helpful. Otherwise I wouldnt trust anyone else.

    If you do go into Disney I suggest you bring your own meals for much cheaper. Hit up Subway $5 for a sub instead of eating food there. We ate at a cheaper location & the food honestly was awful. Also if you bring your own food you can eat while waiting in line. Only one day in disney isnt enough to see a whole heck of a lot honestly so cut corners on money & time as much as you can. Have fun =)

  • Yes, there are tons of scams for Disney in Orlando. Be careful about who you give any sensitive information to.

  • sign up for Disney emails , stay over night at one of the resorts ( Value ones are just fine) and go 2 days. Disney world is actually 4 land parks and 2 or 3 water parks all on the same very large chunk of land. You can't do it in a day. Each park deserves it's own day. @ days actually brings the price down.

  • I think you mean Disney World as Disneyland is in Southern California.

    Do you have a AAA card? You can get some value added deals with it. To cut costs, you should also consider the Disney value resorts or hotels where you can get free breakfast ( at least you'll only have to worry about lunch, dinner and beverages). Also, if you visit at an off peak time you can save too.

    FYI: Try to plan everything ahead of time including your dining.

  • If you want a specific Disney restaurant, then you really need reservations. I think they take reservations up to 90 days in advance. That may have changed though. Have fun!

  • sometims the hotel you are staying out will offer discount tickets, but truthfully 1 day is not enough,, there are tons of stuff to do in the keys, and much closer to Miami!
